About the Call
A total of 477 artists submitted 1,769 entries from all corners of the globe. We were excited by the overwhelming response to our open call, and the work we received was impressive in both its quality and range of diversity. Scott Lawrimore commented that several great shows could have been curated from the works we received.

Cash awards (determined by number of entries) will be distributed at the juror's discretion. Our previous juried exhibition presented cash awards totaling $1,500, plus return shipping for accepted artists. Award winners also receive Championship Trophies, and all accepted artists receive a coveted PUNCH Award Medal.

Entrants are also frequently offered additional exhibition opportunities curated by PUNCH members or staff.

PUNCH will retain a 30% commission on all artwork sales. It is not required, however, that accepted works be for sale.

Work must be able to fit through our front door (81”x40”).

Insurance
Every precaution will be taken to assure that your work is handled with utmost care and respect during installation and throughout the run of the exhibition. However, it is the artist's responsibility to carry insurance for any of his/her works in the exhibition. PUNCH will not be responsible for damage, theft or loss of any kind.

Accepted work must be sent in sturdy, reusable crates or boxes. Unless a special shipping provider is required, artwork will be returned via UPS, or it may be picked up at PUNCH Gallery with prior arrangement.
